Re: Minecraft

Did Minecraft get a new renderer? I logged in for the first time in month after updating the game and texturepack and I'm finding that it's not loading textures properly. But for some reason it seems to be loading chunks faster.

Re: Minecraft

Yes, the rendering system was heavily modified or rewritten. There were clipping/tearing/edging issues all over the place when 1.5 was originally released. Most of them have been fixed, as far as I know.

Re: Minecraft

Figured something had gone on. Now it seems totally random or not whether textures will load or not. In some cases, the main menu after logging in won't even load. Seems rather unstable.

Re: Minecraft

Oh, now I remember! They changed the texture system to use individual image files instead of one big file. This was so they could have flexibility in the number of texture images. So, textures made for 1.4 and earlier simply won't work under 1.5 at all. There are some programs that can convert back and forth, I think, but I don't have any links handy.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I've done a bit a searching and apparently you don't need MCPatcher in order to use HD texture packs any longer. Yay! Maybe that's what was causing the problems as I was patching and it didn't like it. This certainly simplifies things.

Re: Minecraft

Wow. I just recently tried to login myself after a long time away and, after running the latest patch, apparently whatever new rendering engine they're using, my video card is too old to support it.

Disregard - all it took was an updated device driver. Working great now!

Re: Minecraft

I came across this game called StarMade on reddit recently and thought you guys may enjoy it as it's basically Minecraft in space. You start with enough resources to build a small spaceship, you can explore, mine, fight pirates, and use what resources you gather to build bigger ships or bases. It's still in alpha and clearly needs a lot of work, but it's free for now and fun to play around in for a few hours.

Re: Minecraft

^ Thanks for sharing that. I may have to invest some time playing around with it. In the meantime I'm actually looking forward to the MC 1.6 update.

Re: Minecraft

I've actually started playing again with 1.6 and been enjoying it so far.But man, they've really buffed the monsters. Skelli's are rapid-fire killers, and zombies are everywhere!

Not that I mind the challenge. I just hate the how the zombies can somehow manage to slaughter whole villages when I'm not around to protect them. Makes it really hard to go exploring or caving. Hopefully Villagers will start protectign themselves better by 1.7. Or at least stay inside til all the undead have burned

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, the new zombie hording is insane. Though, if you create a cactus fence around you, it's fun to watch them pushing each other into it. Caving has become a real hazard though, even at easy or normal levels. I almost wish they'd scaled the mob buffs (zombies and skeletons) to game difficulty.

Still, the horses, hay, carpets and colored clay have made things very interesting in terms of building up existing bases.
